The Tk send command was designed to provide communications between
different Tcl interpreters. You should ensure that only one process
manages the X display. The second process can use send to instruct
the first to modify the display.
send - Execute a command in a different interpreter
send interp cmd ?arg arg ...?
This command arranges for cmd (and args) to be executed in
the interpreter named by interp. It returns the result or
error from that command execution. Interp must be the name
of an interpreter registered on the display associated with
the interpreter in which the command is invoked; it need
not be within the same process or application. If no arg
arguments are present, then the command to be executed is
contained entirely within the cmd argument. If one or more
args are present, they are concatenated to form the command
to be executed, just as for the eval Tcl command.
